This announcement fixes three denial of service vulnerabilities that were encountered in Gaim. The fixed vulnerabilities are: CAN-2005-0472[2]: Gaim before 1.1.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via malformed SNAC packets from AIM or ICQ. CAN-2005-0473[3]: The HTML parsing functions in Gaim before 1.1.3 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via malformed HTML that causes an invalid memory access. CAN-2005-0208[4]: The HTML parsing functions in Gaim before 1.1.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via malformed HTML that causes an invalid memory access. This vulnerabity is diferent from CAN-2005-0473. For further informations on Gaim's vulnerabilities, please refer to the project's security page[5]. SOLUTION It is recommended that all Gaim users upgrade their packages. IMPORTANT: Gaim must be restarted after the upgrade in order to close the vulnerabilities.
